I have two scopes on my mount. What is the best way to align the shutter aperture to the particular scope I'm using?I don't mind dialing in an "offset", just not sure best place to do that.Scott
I build the server from source with my modifications.
So I've been experimenting with Indigo Server running on a Mac Mini in the observatory. The source is available and I added a "saddle offset" perpendicular to the OTA axis. Seems to work but needs more testing, weather is bad at the moment.
I'll suggest this addition to the CloudMakers team when I'm happy with the math :)
I am interested in this too. It would be a really nice feature to add to driver. Right now you can experiment with offsets in the driver under other options. But that doesn’t exactly do what you want. I haven’t had a chance to work on this yet. But it would be really great if you could save settings for each scope and have a way to then to switch Setups. I have seen some people write a short program to do this, but not sure how this could be done within the existing software. Seems like we need another parameter in the driver for left-right offset on the mount.
Did you get any help with this?
I barely get my scope, 11" edge" to sync and the scope is over the RA/DEC axis.
